Snowstorms on Christmas Day 2012 and the day following caused fresh power outages in Shasta and Plumas counties, where Pacific Gas and Electric Co. crews — more than 300 strong — continued to work through Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to repair broken poles and downed wires from fallen trees, said PG&E. About 3,000 customers were affected.
After nearly a week of 16-hour workdays, most of the hundreds of PG&E workers who came from outside the North Valley to assist local crews in storm recovery headed home Dec. 27, 2012.Add a comment
